Hooked on Aprons - I





When I saw at Hooked on Houses Hooked on Fridays, I wanted so much to join. Then I thought what am I hooked on. One thing that came immediately to my mind was Aprons.

The ones who know me know it already as I posted already some pictures of my aprons. Now, I can't resist to post them again. Sorry for the ones who saw them before but I can't resist.
The pictures are not new at all. But here they are.

This first one was made by my grandmother for me, for my married life. The fabric is very nice and represents an opera house with all people looking to the stage. I never saw nothing like that and I find it amazing.
I also like the rick rack on the borders.

Next one was also made by my grandmother for me.



It's so nice too, with all the colourful fabric squares and strawberry apliqué.

They are so important to me that I stoped using them and I just keep staring at them.

Last one was my mother who gave me. It came together with peg and oven glove peg. I still use them but only sometimes in the year and I only do it when my mother come to my house.



I have more but not so important, because they were bought by me.

Even so, I like all of them because the symbolic value they have, they represent homemaker's power.

I too am hooked on aprons--of course, I lean towards the fashion statement variety :)

What great apron memories! Thanks for showing them off. I do a lot of apron stuff at The Apron Goddesses and would live to have you visit and join in sometime. :)

An apron was what I wanted for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I just love them! They inspire me to get to work. =)

I admire any woman who can wear an apron, I just can't get away with them. Consequently when I'm cooking my clothes are always covered in food and I wipe my hands on my trousers, not a good look.

I love a good apron. When I was young, I made one for myself with a big smiley face on the pocket. Ha. I hadn't thought about that in years. Wish I still had it!

Thanks for joining my blog party and sharing what you're hooked on today! :-)
